Masters Of Jazz Vol. 7





American tenor-saxophonist Johnny Griffin earned the title “Fastest tenor in the West” in the 1950s and it’s obvious why from the great tracks on this CD. *”The Little Giant is in his element here – playing to enthusiastic audiences on these three sessions in Copenhagen’s Montmartre and Slukefter clubs, stretching out on some of his favourite compositions by J. J. Johnson, Diz, Lester Young, Monk and Gene Ammons & Sonny Stitt, enjoying two highly exuberant outings with his old Tough Tenors partner Eddie “Lockjaw” Davis and getting excellent support throughout from the rhythm sections” – * from the new liner notes by Mike Hennessey.
